The most lovely place to wander around, there were some small children running around who seemed to be enjoying it as well. Beautiful orchids and amazing tropical plants. We loved it.

Take time to look at the different areas. Visit the art area for a look and the restaurant, also the tea garden.

If you need to get away from it all, this place is wonderful. There is a bathroom, place to eat and drink. The garden is well maintained and has a fresh feeling about it.

Before you successfully navigate your way through the labyrinth of roads to enter this garden, it will cost you to see and enter almost every portion of the garden. The air is free to breath.

Beautiful place to spend an hour or two, away from the city. Beautiful plants from all over the world, nice flowers and trees, quietness and peace... all the things you need in the middle of a rush day.
